Megapixel Microscope Camera Leica DFC490

Digital color camera with 8-megapixel CCD and multishot technology


New applications in life science and industry require innovative approaches to imaging. Quickly producing high-quality images for documentation, evaluation, and analysis is a key factor for imaging success. The Leica DFC490 digital camera system with multishot technology and FireWire interface provides images with the highest color fidelity, resolution, and detail. Real-time speeds can be achieved using an array of innovative readout modes. The innovative Leica DFC490 integrates an 8-megapixel CCD, which offers superior quality, ultra high-resolution images that were previously only possible with multiple acquisition cameras. High-resolution CCDs are especially beneficial for low magnification imaging on microscopes as the amount of information provided by the optical system is much larger than in high magnification conditions.
